Update: PlayStation Plus members got an exciting look at one of the games they can expect to be able to play for free in April recently. Called Drawn to Death, the game is a title from God of War creator David Jaffe, and it'll be available for free to PS Plus members from April 4 in the US and Europe and April 5 for Australian subscribers.
The game is a third person hybrid shooter and brawler and it has the aesthetic of a violent high school sketchpad brought to life.
This is a great way to try games you might not otherwise have played, whether because they're indie titles that slip under your radar or simply because you don’t have the funds to buy several games a month.
Even if you don’t plan to play them straight away, or you’re not sure if they’re your kind of game, we’d say it’s always worth claiming them while you can get them for free.
You'll then have access to them for as long as you have an active PS Plus account.
Since this is a monthly event, we’ve decided to create a one-stop shop where you’ll be able to find the newest free games, as well as scroll back and see which games were featured in previous months. That way you’ll know whether it’s worth holding out for a game to appear in an upcoming PlayStation Plus haul or if it's already been offered.
So without further ado, here are the free PlayStation Plus games in North America, Europe, and Australia for March 2017, which will be available to download from March 7 until the end of the month.
